My kids love to play games, some require rolling several dice. Made these dice tumbling towers in a variety of different woods including maple, cherry, poplar, oak, walnut, quarter-sawn sycamore, and hickory. Each type of wood creates a different sound as the dice tumble down and out into the tray. This seemed to excite them more than the color/grain/type of wood.
The towers will nest inside the tray allowing the dice to be contained inside the tower for travel. The cut-away view shows how the baffles were glued to create the tumbling action. I made these of my own design based on having seen something similar at Gen-Con.
